A New Start

This will be the last post added the Republican Dan Blog -- but I'm not signing off, merely expanding. I am creating a new site, and this is my explanation (which will be on the site's home page for the time being):

The renaissance of American culture will be the work of conservative students now on college campuses. We have seen religion in America grow weak and we want to make it strong again. We have seen Americans forget the meaning of good and evil, and of man and woman; we want to remind them. We have seen teachers politicize literature, art, and history; we want to restore art for art’s sake, and for the sake of truth and beauty – not for politics or “social justice.” We want history professors to teach us the truth – not feminism, multiculturalism, or the latest revisionist fads.

There are some of us on every campus, but on most we are outnumbered. No single college has the critical mass of conservative student intellectuals we need in order to resuscitate this country and prepare its next Great Awakening.

The Critical Mass Blog will unite conservatives on campuses across the country. It is a stream of information flowing through American colleges, growing with each new contributor and contribution, turning gradually into a river of conservative thought. The Critical Mass Blog carries the ideas of today’s young conservatives.

We are launching this blog with two representatives at Yale and one at Wesleyan. We hope that conservatives at other campuses will volunteer their own pieces and cooperation.

We will keep track of represented colleges on the sidebar. Please take a look at our blog, and send us a note if you want to contribute. (There you will find my next piece -- on morality, as promised.)

We need collegiate conservatives to submit their pieces -- especially now at our beginning. Thanks for reading, and we hope you'll have a chance to watch us grow.

The 15th

Check back on the 15th of January for a critical announcement.
